Taurus 605SS3 357 3IN FS SS
by Spencer A Date Added: Thursday 03 July, 2008
This gun surprised me in that it is better than I thought it would be. Very pleasant to shoot with everything from mild 38 Spl. wadcutters up throught 125 gr. 357 Magnums. It is controllable, but not great fun with 158 gr. magnum loads, and a handful with hot 170 gr. magnums, but all that is better than I expected from a small 3" 5-shot 357 revolver. Sub 3" groups from 25 yards were the norm, and that is pretty good from me anymore with anything but a 22 semiauto. I am sure a good shooter could do lots better.
The action was smooth, if a little stiff, and an open action cleaning showed no burrs or trash or other bad points. This matched the outside which had a nice even matte finish. I switched the springs to Wolff, and now it is a pure dream both single and double action, and every primer still had a nice deep centered hit. I missed getting one of these from Taurus when they made them in the '90s, and I am glad I got the chance to remedy that now. I definitely like this revolver better than my one daughter's Smith 60, and it is much handier than the other daughter's Ladysmith.
